Book: Part-Time Princess
Author: Pamela DuMond
Genre: New Adult – Contemporary Romance
Two Princes are in love with her. Too bad she’s an imposter…
Lucy Trabbicio’s a down-on-her-luck, young, cocktail waitress desperate to find a job to keep her uncle at Assisted Living. Lady Elizabeth Billingsley hires Lucy to impersonate her to keep the attention of Crown Prince Cristoph of Fredonia while she completes her pressing personal business in the States.
In the mother of all makeovers, Elizabeth’s people transform Lucy into a reluctant ‘Lady’ and she travels to Fredonia for ten days ‘tops.’ What could possibly go wrong?
Sexy, bad-boy Nick—Fredonia’s other Prince—that’s what goes wrong!
Nick has a romantic history with Elizabeth and he wants to pick up the between-the-sheets action with her impersonator—Lucy. Even though Lucy’s wildly attracted to him, she has to resist—she can’t lose this job! Dreamy Nick’s courting Lucy hot and heavy when Prince Cristoph proposes marriage. What’s an imposter girl to do?
Elizabeth insists that she’ll make it back home in time for the wedding. Lucy accepts Cristoph’s proposal and is on the fast track to becoming a Princess when another glitch arises—someone’s trying to kill her! Besides Nick, the only folks helping Lucy are her wild, party hard, take-no-prisoners Ladies-in-Waiting.
A modern day, sexy tale with romance, twists and turns, LOL moments, a few tears and a Happily-Ever-After Ending (Just not the way you expected it!)
|When you suddenly start tearing up at the end of the book, you know it was worth the read. Man, this truly was a great romance, with just the right amount of humor in it not to bore me. And since I am so not a big fan of romance novels, I have to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one.
This was a story with true heart, real friendships, hard choices and unconditional love… The writing is great and easy to read.
Now, Lucy, the main protagonist, was a wonderful and real person, whom you can see as a friend. She is loyal, fierce, true to herself, and incredibly kind. You’ll root for her, love her and even yell at her, but you’ll want the best outcome that will make her happy too. As a real friend should.
The romance in this book, well, let’s just say it is so worth it. I rooted for the perfect ‘happily ever after’ and almost thought she wouldn’t get it.
Nick, oh Nick. Tall, dark and handsome doesn’t even begin to describe this man.
Then there are Lucy’s ‘ladies’ – now this is true friendship at its core. Even when her world turned upside-down and inside-out, they stuck with her. Also, you’ll create a playlist after reading this book, of all your favorite golden oldies – which definitely gives more depth to the entire plot.
A must read if you want an enjoyable, fun read that will make you root for friendship and love…
